Sommers, A., D., Gebhart, C., W., and Hermes, C., J., 2018, The role of surface wettability on natural convection frosting: Frost growth data and a new correlation for hydrophilic
and hydrophobic surfaces, Int.
It was also observed that by increasing the amount of the surfactant (Rhodasurf CET-2) there was a consistent decrease in the consistency for the Exp hydrophilic
VPS (Exp-III, 31.20+-0.78 mm; Exp-IV, 32.00+-0.54; Exp-V, 31.00+-0.62 mm) but these were not significant (Fig 1 and Table 4).
(16) In terms of IOL material characteristics, posterior capsule opacification occurs more frequently with hydrophilic
compared to hydrophobic IOLs because a hydrophilic
surface provides a foundation for lens epithelial cell proliferation and migration, whereas a hydrophobic surface adheres tightly to the posterior capsule due to its highly bioadhesive nature.
The above graph shows that the vehicle with low mileage (virgin core in this case) retains less water as majority of the hydrophilic
coating is present.
Results from the current study suggest that if a hydrophilic
catheter choice can be secured, money can be saved for the healthcare system, and complications could be avoided for the patient.
In terms of value, the polymers segment of the global hydrophilic
coating market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
The reason is that with time, a part of the hydrophilic
coating washes off with the moisture that condenses over the evaporator core from the air-stream.
The heparin modification of PMMA IOL changed the surface property from hydrophobic to hydrophilic
, which resulted in a reduced inflammatory cell adhesion and, therefore, a better uveal biocompatibility.
The ultimate result presented herein is that the asymmetrical cavity formation can also be produced by simply dropping a half-half sphere that is hydrophobic on the hemisphere side and hydrophilic
on the other.
Shin and Ha 2002 measured the amount of water hold-up on hydrophilic
heat exchangers with three different fin shapes (plain fin, plain fin with a slant end, and discrete plain fins).
These PU films are typically modified with hydrophilic
functional groups or combined with a hydrophilic
polymer, such as polyethylene oxide (PEO), so that they can adsorb sweat molecules, which then diffuse through the film and ultimately escape through the micropores in the ePTFE.
They did so by studying hydrophilic
, lipophilic, free-soluble and insoluble-bound phenolic extracts, using a lipoxygenase/4-nitroso-N,N-dimethylaniline (LOX/RNO) technique.
